In the early 1970′s, cult short film director Kenneth Anger teamed up with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page to produce music for a 30-minute short inspired by the works of renowned occultist Aleister Crowley. Three years later, Anger fired Page for taking too long to produce the music and instead hired Bobby Beausoliel, who was serving a life sentence for the murder of Gary Hinman, an order given by Charles Manson. Beausoliel recorded the music in prison.

Now, 40 years later, we are finally going to hear the Jimmy Page score revisited, remixed, and remastered. Today the compositions are to be released via vinyl only. There will be a limited run of 418 numbered copies with the first 93 signed by Jimmy Page. You can snag one here.
Below you can hear the title theme as well as see the entire 28-minute short film.
